Chapter 5. Adding Graphics and Multimedi... > Cropping and Resizing a Picture

Cropping and Resizing a Picture

You can crop clip art to isolate just one portion of the picture. Because clip art uses vector image technology, you can crop, or cut out, even the smallest part of it and then enlarge it, and the clip art will still be recognizable. You can also crop bitmapped pictures, but if you enlarge the area you cropped, you lose picture detail. You can crop an image by hand using the Crop button on the Picture toolbar. You can also crop or scale a picture using the Format Picture dialog box, which gives you precise control over the dimensions of the area you want to modify.
